A few words about Back to School shopping on Tax Free Weekend. Be sure you know what qualifies as tax exempt and what does not. The basic breakdown is clothing, school and art supplies that cost $100 or less per item and computers that cost $1,500 or less are tax free. You should read over the list of tax exempt items before you head out shopping.
Go with a list and a plan. Don’t get caught up in the no tax frenzy, it is really less than a 10% savings. BUT, when you pair that with all the sale and the coupons that are out this weekend you can save a lot! Buy what you need now, save the stocking up for clearance deals that will come in a few weeks!
